The fax machine recieves faxes but does not send out.
I faxed from my machine to the Brother 2820 and it received it but when I try faxing from the Brother to my fax it only rings once then stops and says "busy waiting for redial" then it redials and finally it prints out the "Busy" transmision verification report but my fax machine is not busy. Please help.

The problem is in the recieve mode you have it set to tel/fax you need to set it to fax if yu have it on auto or te/fax if you pick the phone up you have to press the start bbutton to get the fax through if you are only using it as a fax set it to fax .. it will then go strait through.. good luck..A
From everything that I've seen I don't see any way to tim stamp incoming faxes. Almost all fax machines should automatically time stamp outgoing faxes unless the user has removed that function for some reason. If you are getting faxes from people that don't include time stamps than the next best thing is to use the journaling feature. The 2820 can print a journal of past incoming faxes that will include timestamps of the past faxes recieved in either 6,12,24 hour or 2, 7 day intervals. The default is every 50 faxes. To change the settings:
Press Menu/Set, 2,4,2
2. Journal Period
Use Arrows to choose an interval
The FAX machine will print the Tel number that has been programmed in your machine. It does not print on the basis of the caller ID received. So i think if you remove the number programmed in your fax machine
First make sure that the fax button has been pushed and is llit...
The 2820 should have a handset. In order to use manual transmission (when you get to hear all the beeps and whistles) you will need to load the document then pick up the handset. then dial the number, when you hear the recieving fax tone then hit the start button.
The 2820 should also have a hook hold button pressing this will allow you to hear the dial tone and the numbers you dial along with the receiving fax tone. If you dont hear anything when you press this button then you may want to use the volume buttons to increase the volume.
Also remember that if you have not picked up the handset or pressed he hook/hold button the unit will use automatic mode, which is to say that all you will do is load the document, dial the number, and then press the start button.
Hi. Open the document control panel and look in with a flashlight and see if the jam switch is stuck. also look for a small piece of paper that might be stuck in there. The jam is in where you put documents in to fax out. Lawrence
There should not be a problem with TX on LGL paper. If you want to configure the machine to recieve LGL on a regular basis: Press "MENU" 1-3. Then use the up/down arrows to select LGL. "MENU", "EXIT". That should do it. Good luck!
